Example text

Octavio Paz’s literary adventures in the Orient were more serious, more sustained, and more insightful than those of any other Mexican figure (with the possible exception of José Juan Tablada). ’’16 In sharp contrast to Lombardo Toledano, who knew very little about China or Chinese culture before embarking on his trip, Paz cultivated an expert knowledge of Asian literature, history, and philosophy. When the poet was in his forties, he published essays on classical Japanese literature, wrote his first haikus (a lifelong passion), and translated Basho’s Roads to Oku; in his fifties, he wrote essays on Taoism and Chinese eroticism (collected in Conjunctions and Disjunctions [1969]), and served as Mexican ambassador to India, an experience that would inspire numerous texts, including The Monkey Grammarian (1970), a hallucinatory prose poem recounting a pilgrimage to Galta in Rajastan.

1 Contemporary Art Center in New York includes a selection of Ricas y famosas in an exhibition about young artists in Mexico City bearing the inordinately long title Mexico City: An Exhibition about the Exchange Rates of Bodies and Values. ’’7 In his characteristically baroque language, Biesenbach basically called Rossell’s models high-class whores. Surprisingly the text, though written by an art professional, has nothing to say about photographic strategies or techniques of representation (though it includes plenty of moralizing about the lifestyles of the subjects).

I can also—though in no way claiming to represent or to analyze reality itself (these being the major gestures of Western discourse)—isolate somewhere in the world (faraway) a certain number of features (a term employed in linguistics), and out of these features deliberately form a system. It is this system which I call: Japan. Hence Orient and Occident cannot be taken here as ‘‘realities’’ to be compared and contrasted historically, philosophically, culturally, politically. I am not lovingly gazing toward an Oriental essence—to me the Orient is a matter of indifference, merely providing a reserve of features whose manipulation—whose invented interplay—allows me to ‘‘entertain’’ the idea of an unheard-of symbolic system, one altogether detached from our own.
